Without specifics and some baseline data, it's hard to do more than just
guess at the problem and the solution.  My WAG is that you are experiencing
BLODA or need to rebase.  Since you've made one pass at the BLODA issue,
I would suggest installing the 'rebase' package, reading its README, and
following the instructions there to rebase your system.  That might help.
